Trey Gowdy threatens to hold IRS commissioner in contempt for withholding Lerner emails [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | 3/26/14 | Brendan Bordelon

Posted on 03/26/2014 8:40:38 PM PDT by Nachum

After a contentious Wednesday hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy threatened to hold the top tax official in contempt of Congress unless he produces disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails by the end of this week.

Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about Wednesday’s hearing, where a slew of GOP congressmen tore into Koskinen’s claim that responding to the Oversight committee’s subpoena for Lerner’s emails could take years.

“All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner — I’m not talking about private taxpayer information. That’s 6103, that’s confidential, that’s a separate conversation,” he said.

“Just emails like the one she sent celebrating a Democratic victory in a special election, calling on the FEC to save the day — overtly political, nothing to do with her job — we’ll just settle for those!” the congressman said. “And I even said just give me the ones from January 2010!”

Well, maybe. But John Boehner, Eric Cantor, the committee chairman and the rest of the House leadership are a bunch of wussies who are too cowardly to hold contemptible Obama creatures in contempt.

Trey Gowdy is all talk.

And he’s an amnesty buddy.

Should have done this way back. Nothings getting done. A lot of threats. Those and a dollar will get you a milky way bar at CVS.

Indeed Trey Gowdy is a genuine stalwart for law and ethics. But sadly, contempt or other threats mean nothing to the thugs of the IRS. They have a lawless president behind them and know that no matter how bad it gets legally, they will be taken care of.

Hold him in contempt?

What does that actually mean?

What does he mean by “hold”?

Is he going to hug him?

He is the Representative who I would like to take Speaker Boehner’s place. He's good and doesn't take any flack from any of them.

Unless The House IMPRISONS Lerner finding her in Contempt will not matter at all, just like with Holder.

The Democrats are scofflaws and the Republican House are blustering, cowering, and ineffectual. In other words: worthless. That has to end TODAY.

The House MUST use its inherent power to imprison this contumacious witness.

I keep hearing threats but don't see any action.

We’ll see. Lots of us thought Issa was the man, too, about 47 hearings ago.
